Bond Election Public Hearing Scheduled for Monday
The Natrona County School District is slated to hold a public hearing regarding a proposed $33 million dollar bond election that may occur later this year.
The hearing scheduled for Monday is the second of two meetings required by state law.
District officials say they need the extra money to pay for certain enhancements that the state of Wyoming will not pay for. Specifically, the district is looking to spend an additional $5 million in security enhancements at elementary and middle schools, just over $5 million for a new science and technology center and just over $5 million for specialized academy equipment.
The district is also proposing to use $16 million for a new pool at Natrona County High School and renovated pools at Kelly Walsh High School and Midwest High School.
The hearing will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the district’s central services building. A regular school board meeting will immediately follow at 7:30 p.m.
